2016 was quite a year for TV shows, in fact, it was probably the best in a long time. The greatest Korean drama, in a long while, that had ever went on broadcast was aired in early 2016. It was the greatest as there were many factors of the drama that separates it from all other dramas. It was a drama, the only one ever, where every single character was loved, from the main to the cameos to the extras, and heck, even the antagonists were adored. The only one where the plot strayed from the typical rich heir and poor servant, hate at first sight that later turns to forbidden love, tragic nice guy second lead that stupidly falls for the main lead girl who always chooses the cold-hearted main lead guy, evil stepmothers that can’t accept anything poor, jealous ex-girlfriends going into illegal means to get at the main lead girl, and secrets that take forever- or actually, more like 20 episodes- to uncover. The only drama where the romance was mature and not high schoolish and drama-like, where both the guy and the girl were understanding and respecting of each other and their careers or life situations. It is… the one and only Descendants of the Sun!!! The drama was a major hit in Korea and gained immense popularity all across Asia and even into the Western countries. It was sold for $250,000 per episode to China (meaning a total of $4 million!), the highest that a KDrama has ever been sold to the country. This was later beaten by the dramas Uncontrollably Fond and Scarlet Heart: Ryeo, though that is a different story because those two dramas were disappointing. Overall, most kdrama addicts would say Descendents of the Sun was the greatest drama of 2016, or even, of all time.
Just as 2016 was a year of great and unique dramas, 2017 is expected to bring along the same. Saying that…Attack on Titans Season 2 is coming out!!! It's coming out in April of 2017!!! Back in 2013, the anime swept everyone, even non-anime fans, off their feet. After the last episode of the first season ended, everyone asked, “Is there a second season? It's not ending like that, is it? When is the second season coming out? Who? What? Where? When? Why? How?” Every single day, fans waited in anticipation for any news of a sequel to that would match the amazingness of the the show. A year passed before rumors surfaced of a second season, but it wasn't until another year that it would be confirmed that a second season was actually coming out. Fans and casual watchers alike waited day after day after day for an announcement of the when the show would be broadcasted, and all were disappointed when it was announced that there would be delays. Now finally, it has been announced that the second season would be airing April of 2017, 4 whole years after the first season was aired! And a trailer actually came with it, too!! Now we must start a countdown to the day that the long-awaited show becomes released.
